Good processor, very efficient. Best value on the market at the moment.

  • Summary: Good processor, not really an upgrade from a 2500k, but slightly more efficient per clock and per watt. Haven't overclocked yet, so I can't comment on that. If you're using an older chipset that only supports the Ivy Bridge processors with a BIOS upgrade, make sure you do the upgrade before you install the 3570k. I wasted a lot of time trouble shooting compatibility, and had to put in an older processor to upgrade the BIOS on a GA-Z68X-UD3P. Learn from my mistakes!

  • Summary: Finally finished piecing together my new PC and gave it some time to test it out. Most of my decision making was the result of reviews from here (Amazon) and forums on tomshardware.com. -NZXT Guardian 921 RB ATX Mid Tower Case, Black 921RB-001-BL -Intel Core i5-3570K -Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit -EVGA GeForce GTX760 SuperClocked w/ACX Cooler (02G-P4-2765-KR) -Corsair Vengeance Blue 8GB (2x4 GB) (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B) -Gigabyte Intel Z77 LGA 1155 (GA-Z77X-UD3H) -OCZ...

FPS Master

Marco E., Newegg
2 April 2014
  • Summary: Was going 1155 but that 4670K is just too hot of a CPU for the extra 2% gain, not worth it IMO.
  • Pros: Perfect CPU for gaming. mines can do 4.5/4.6Ghz at 1.2v and never exceeds 56F (in-game) with an Enermax ETS-T40-BK air cooler. Is significantly faster than my OC'ed AMD 8 core CPU, especially when it comes to gaming. Very happy with this CPU, have purchased 5 already for various builds and not one issue to this date..
  • Cons: The fan, but that is the first thing you toss in the garbage upon opening the package.

Love this CPU

Marco E., Newegg
9 March 2014
  • Summary: 3570K @ 4.7Ghz @ 1.25v with a Dark Knight II (push/pull) @ 70F ambient using a Corsair 250D. Running large FFT's results in a stable temp of 70/72c. While gaming the temp has never surpassed 62c, in winter it stayed at a constant 52c. Very happy overall with this CPU.
  • Pros: Not sure if i got lucky or not but out of 3 of these chips my last one can go as high as 4.7Ghz and it wont even break 62c while gaming/benching hard on an air cooler. Other than that we all know what this chip can do, for the price you simply cannot get anything better.
  • Cons: Nada..

Excellent Processor

joseph h., Newegg
8 March 2014
  • Summary: As I already stated I was forced to delid the chip I have because of ridiculous temps, however for me personally it was right up my alley and I actually enjoyed it, however I doubt there is going to be very many people that feel the same way I did as it is an inherently dangerous process that will void your warranty.
  • Pros: *Running at 3.4Ghz its still fast enough to handle any game on the market now, with the chip I have easily reaching 4.2Ghz at a mild 1.26v (high compared to some chips, I know)
  • Cons: *The stock Intel cooler is a piece of garbage, so you automatically have to equate that into its cost.
